AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client - VPN with SSL

VPN-Profile

Two profiles are available. These are offered automatically when the connection is established.

  • All_tunneled - With this configuration, all traffic is routed through the tunnel. Only the local LAN can be excluded. The nameservice is done exclusively via the nameservers of the TU. This setting is also required, for example, to access externally hosted services such as e-books, e-journals and databases that have been licensed by the library but are not located in the IP address range of the TU Wien.
  • TU_tunneled - With this configuration only the traffic to and from the TU is routed through the tunnel. The nameservice for *.tuwien.ac.at is done via the nameservers of the TU. For all other domains, the provider's name service is used.

In case of problems with the installation on your system, please contact our service center!
